Introductions: Just found out Bypass & valve replacement needed !
Hello all, my first post.
Hi, I am 62 and was diagnosed with CHD and had a stent fitted (awful paternal history) about 4 years ago and since then felt fine and all was well - until about six months ago. Pain started to get more frequent as did breathlessness. I also had to give up things like yoga which I really enjoyed and even short walks (only manage about 100-200 metres now.
Had an angiogram last week and have been told that I need a triple bypass and a valve replacement (sooner rather than later). As you can imagine this has come as a bit of a short but until I see the surgeon don't know what to expect (both during and post op). Any advice welcomed.
